Learn About Our Board

And everything they do to support our goals

Dance Project strives to make professional quality dance accessible to the whole community through our school serving youth and adults, our community outreach programs, and the NC Dance Festival.

Board Members play an essential role in helping us foster relationships with the donors, sponsors, and community partners that make these opportunities possible; benefitting students, artists and audiences alike.

Our Board Members also assist at our events and performances, serve on our committees, and advocate for our organization in the community.

We are a home for North Carolina’s artists; fostering innovation and new connections.   

We are a source of joy for the community; promoting wellness and togetherness.
